Hieronumus Bosch's "Christ Carrying the Cross"

I have a great deal of respect for this painting. Although some of the figures are not rendered as solidly as they could have been, the chaotic design of this painting nicely emphasizes the serenity of Jesus in the center. Everyone around him is ugly and distorted while he remains beautiful and "good." Religiosity aside, I love this painting.
